Video on Integrated Resource Team Strategies to Improve Workforce Services for Job Seekers with Disabilities

Posted by Alexandra Kielty - On February 02, 2015 (EST)

The February theme for the Disability and Employment CoP is focused on Integrated Resource Team (IRT) strategies in American Job Centers. IRTs were initially used by the Disability Program Navigator grants and has been an essential component of the Disability Employment Initiative and represent partnership and collaboration to address the needs of a person with a disability or multiple challenges to employment.

This resource is a demonstration video of a workforce center in Portland, OR, and their DPN bringing together different partners on behalf of an individual who is deaf. Although created in 2010, it is a timely representation of job center staff facilitating access to career pathway through mechanical training curriculum in a community college, and a moving example of the power of cross-agency collaboration.
